Re: VMs: Ptolemy

Petrus de Dacia was a Sweden monk. 
I remember one time I stumbled over an ancient map where somewhere in
the northern part of the Germany or Denmark there was a region marked
as been "Dacia".
That was intriguing. From what I remember it was an english site who
was selling those ancient maps.
You may also check the Boethius of Dacia (born in Denmark)
Per wiki 

      "Boethius was a member of the Modist grammarians. In de Modis,
Beothius posits that it is possible to extract rules of a universal
grammar from all living languages."
Also a member of the Modist was Martin de Dacia.
